Joe’s Valley Reservoir, Utah

We camped for five nights at the Joe’s Valley Reservoir Campground. When we arrived in the evening of Tuesday October 19, 2016 there were very few others in the campground. We chose a back-in spot with a great view of the lake. 

While there we went to see the Little Grand Canyon of Utah.   

We also went down a really cool canyon with great scenery and ancient Native American art. 

In addition to beautiful scenery and the canyon art, we enjoyed some fun fishing at Potters Pond that is about 15 miles north of the campground in Upper Joe’s Valley. There is a small primitive campground there and two ponds. At this campground a single site for our trailer is site 11 and site 6 is better for a trailer and tents.

The East pond seems to have more fish, but they’re smaller. The West pond had 12-16 inch trout that were down deep. They seemed to like a blue and black balanced leech pattern. Preston caught his first trout on a fly rod at these ponds.
